You Won't Go Unnoticed Here
“I am leaving Columbia with deep-rooted friendships.”
You definitely won’t be the only commuter at Columbia. Every year about half of our students commute to campus — some from just next door and some from North Van or Chilliwack. What we hear over and over from our commuter students is that Columbia can be a home away from home, especially when you take the time to hang out on campus before, between, and after classes. You’ll meet incredible people and enjoy plenty of opportunities to engage in the encouraging, Christ-centered community that is so central to the Columbia experience.
Our team of Commuter Hosts will be looking out for you. There’s always a Commuter Host on duty in the Lounge, and their role is to keep everything comfy and inviting for commuters. They also plan commuter events throughout the semester (think potlucks, coffee house with live music, and fun contests).

“Being a part of the Columbia community has been a HUGE blessing! When you’re a commuter, it can be tempting to head off-campus after class without really engaging, so from two commuters — here are some tips and stories about getting involved!”
“Commuter life at CBC could be just coming to class and leaving when your day is over. But the commuter lounge offers you a place to relax, connect and grow in community at CBC. It truly is a home away from home for commuter students.”
“Commuter life is great at CBC; not only do you get to come to school to learn and meet great people, you also gain another home away from home. Plus the commuter lounge is a great place to relax and connect with other students who may be on a similar path as you.”
